I have always been a soda drinker. It is one of my guilty pleasures and it is perfect for an afternoon pick me up. In an effort, to try and cut down on sugar, I started buying seltzer water. It was not the same. That’s when I turned to the SodaStream kitchen appliance. It’s the cost-effective, convenient and eco-friendly solution that allows me to enjoy my favorite carbonated drink whenever I want. It also gives me an opportunity to reduce my carbon footprint or just the amount of plastic recycling and garbage that I produce.
The SodaStream Fizzi is an at-home carbonator that allows you to turn plain water into seltzer water. It comes in a box that includes the main unit, a CO2 cylinder, and a one-liter plastic bottle. The initial investment is more expensive than buying a pack of cans, but it comes with some benefits you can’t get with cans.
The device eliminates the need to carry boxes from the store to your home. Instead of using batteries or electricity to function, the device operates with a push of a button that releases carbonation from a CO2 cylinder into your drink. The cylinder is designed to make up to 60 liters of sparking
Installing is simple and straightforward. Just open the unit’s back door, twist the cylinder in place, and then cover it back up. Then, you’re ready to make carbonated drinks!
The BPA-free bottle included is designed to fit perfectly into the device. It’s clear, durable, and has a fill-line that tells you how much water you need to add before carbonating your drink. Once filled, the bottle needs to be inserted at an angle and pushed into an upright position to lock it into place.
When secured, you can follow instructions to carbonate the water to your liking. The brand recommends pumping the top button three times for a light fizz and five times for a heavier fizz.
One of the best characteristics is that it gives you a foundation to make whatever drink you want. You can create a liter of cola, ginger ale and so much more. You can also skip the flavors and sip on a fresh club soda and a squeeze of lemon for a refreshing drink.
This device has been a money-saving addition to my kitchen, which is wonderful.
